Want to melt away fat immediately? Sergio M. Zamora MD, FACS offers laser lipo for men and women who live in Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach and the surrounding communities in Florida.
What Is Laser Lipo?
For those patients who have fatty deposits that give them a less than optimal body contour, Dr. Zamora has a thermal contouring treatment that can improve your body shape. Our laser liposuction is a thermal contouring process that uses a laser light applied directly under your skin. These treatments cause your fat cells to release the fat they contain which reduces the size of these fatty cells. The result is a slimmer contour for you without pain, incisions, danger of infection or a long recovery period.
Benefits of a Laser Lipo
With laser liposuction, energy from a laser travels through your skin to the fatty tissue, and it melts your fat, which is then removed through a suction device attached to a surgical tool called a cannula. At the same time, the laser stimulates the production of collagen, which helps tighten your tissue and skin. Because the laser cauterizes your blood vessels as it works, there is minimal bleeding or bruising. Laser liposuction is a minimally invasive treatment that can help those patients who want to get rid of areas of localized fat but don't want to undergo an aggressive, traditional liposuction treatment. Laser lipo can safely treat many areas characterized by flabby skin and localized fatty deposits, including the arms, abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, back, chest and even for enlarged male breasts.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For A Laser Lipo?
Many people have stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. Laser liposuction uses laser energy to melt away your fat. When compared to traditional liposuction methods, laser liposuction results in less bleeding, less bruising and less downtime. What's more, the energy from the laser helps to promote skin tightening in the treated areas for excellent body sculpting and skin tone results.
What Do I Need To Do Before A Laser Lipo?
Some men and women have resistant fat that cannot be exercised or dieted away. Stop feeling bad about stubborn pockets of fat and start enjoying the body you truly deserve. Set up your laser lipo consultation with Dr. Zamora and he will advise you of everything that you need to do before your laser lipo procedure.
What Should I Expect On The Day Of My Laser Lipo?
During your laser liposuction procedure, small incisions are made to access the area to be treated by Dr. Zamora. Then once the area has been numbed with a tumescent solution, a laser is introduced through a small tube known as a cannula. Dr. Zamora will glide the laser across the treatment area, and this energy will rupture unwanted fat cells. Simultaneously, heat from the laser will seal off adjacent small blood vessels, helping to minimize bleeding and bruising, promoting new collagen production in the treated areas, which will, in turn, produce a skin-tightening effect in the months after your laser lipo treatment. Once the fat has been fully treated with the laser, it will then be suctioned from your body by Dr. Zamora. Your downtime is minimal, and most patients can resume normal activity with a weeks time. Patients considering this procedure should be in good overall health, close to their normal body weight and should have realistic expectations for the results.
How Long Does It Take To Perform A Laser Lipo?
Your laser lipo procedure can be completed in one to two hours, depending on the degree of coverage required to remove unwanted fat deposits.
What To Expect After A Laser Lipo?
You will experience mild bruising, swelling and soreness, but these typically resolve within a week. Some patients are ready to return to work two to three days after surgery, though you’ll need to avoid strenuous activities for a little while longer, but you’ll be able to resume most routine tasks. Then after a week, many patients notice that their bruising, swelling and discomfort have dramatically decreased, and you can generally resume all of your regular activities.
Will I Have Scars After Getting A Laser Lipo?
With laser liposuction, there are no stitches, and there is virtually no scarring. Unlike traditional liposuction, which may leave areas of loose and flabby skin, laser lipo promotes smoother and tighter skin tone, in addition to minimal scarring.
When Will I See The Results?
At about a week post-surgery you may start to see the results of your treatment as your swelling subsides. After two weeks, you should definitely start seeing your results, and these results will continue to improve for several months after treatment, as the laser energy used to liquefy the fat also has skin tightening and smoothing benefits that take time to fully develop.
What Are Possible Complications Of A Laser Lipo?
When you sit down and meet with Dr. Zamora during your consultation he will discuss with you the procedure as well as any potential complications.
How Long Will The Results Of Laser Lipo Last?
Your results of laser lipo treatment are long lasting and can be maintained as long as you are committed to a healthy lifestyle, which is why laser lipo with Dr. Zamora is such an invaluable investment in your body contour. Providing you avoid future weight gain, the results of your laser liposuction will last a long time to come.

Laser Liposuction FAQs
How effective is laser liposuction?
Laser liposuction is extremely effective in reducing unwanted fat in your treated areas. Not only does the laser system help break down pockets of unwanted fat, but it also helps stimulate collagen production in the skin throughout treatment for beautifully smooth and slim results every time.
Does laser lipo permanently remove fat?
Yes, the fat lost during laser liposuction is gone. That being said, weight gain following laser lipo can cause remaining fat cells to swell and your body can create new fat cells. For this reason, we recommend patients live a healthy and active lifestyle to maintain their desired results.
How many sessions does laser lipo take?
How many laser lipo sessions you’ll need to achieve your ultimate results may vary depending on a variety of factors. Laser lipo can be done on different areas of the body. Some areas can be done in one surgical setting but others may have to be done in stages due to patient safety. To learn more about your laser lipo requirements, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with Dr. Zamora.
How much weight can you lose with laser liposuction?
It is difficult to measure liposuction in pounds, although some patients experience changes on the scale most patients say that their clothes fit better. That being said, it’s important to remember that laser lipo – or any liposuction – should not be viewed as a weight-loss treatment. Instead, these procedures should supplement your already healthy and active lifestyle.
How painful is laser lipo?
Laser lipo treatments are not painful as Dr. Zamora and his team use general anesthesia throughout your surgery. Following your surgery, Dr. Zamora will provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions to ensure you have a quick and comfortable recovery. Moderate swelling, bruising, and tenderness around treated areas is normal. These side effects typically resolve within a few weeks of your final treatment. Compression garments are recommended for after surgery.
